Forgery on the Fourth - October 2017




This month's inspiration: 
Prima
I am intrigued with the aged metal elements, the many scripty words, and the paper with patterned stripes - an easy forgery using washi tapes! Plus it's always fun to gather up your own stamp set each month.

Let's see what the Design Team has come up with this month:


Did you see the shells on Prima’s journal cards and ephemera?    
Susanne made her own journal cards, or perhaps these will be die-cuts if she trims them down.  When in Bermuda, she had taken photographs of pillows that were decorating her hotel bed.  She cropped the photo, trimmed them to squares and printed them on cardstock, instead of photo paper.  They now have the look of ephemera.  She could also add in text or perhaps layer little words strips to customize them even more.  Gorgeous!

 

Have you looked at your photos for ideas like this?  Travel posters or other framed artwork is often a good source.


Kelly realized she did not have any of the fancy flowers like the ones found in the inspiration kit. So she took plain flowers and enamel dots from her stash and made her own! Details are on her blog.


And you can also visit Leslie's CKC Pinterest board for some perfect free printables!

And these look interesting too! See what Lisa tracked down online:

  4. The photo of the cushions is surely inspired! And Kelly reminded me that I have many of those flowers left over from back in the day that I could layer up in a pretty way like this! Off to see if I really have as many as I think!
